about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Fixed like a plant on his peculiar spot

To draw nutrition, propagate, and rot.

Mindful revoke
You could if you wanted to, I suppose, but I don't see any reason you should. Sometimes players don't expose their cards when claiming - they just say "I've got the rest" and before they can show cards or state a line they are asked to play on ...
Mindful revoke
Any hand can revoke, but revokes by failing to play one of dummy's cards or failing to play a penalty card are not subject to rectification. Law 64B3 refers.

Bidding without Lebensohl
Could she remember lebensohl when she was five?
Mindful revoke
Quite so, but that does not mean we should not eliminate them if we can.
Mindful revoke
I would play some other way because I don't want tournaments decided by random acts of favouritism, or of altruism in general. I pay for my mistakes, you pay for yours. Like Michael Rosenberg I also don't want them decided by random consequences of irregularities. That requires considerable ...
considerably worse than trivial
Well, the thread disappeared from the front page just after (or maybe just before) I posted the comment; interest in the topic may have nose-dived as a result from no particularly great height in the first place. But hands whose total Milton Work points equals the sum of their spot ...
How Likely to Make?
May depend on methods - it's not so much giving away information as giving opportunities to the opponents. If we end in 3NT they will lead a major anyway, so I don't care about showing minors. What I do care about is starting with 2 and having that ...
